MAC'S BACKS BOOK CLUB DISCUSSES WUTHERING HEIGHTS
Mac's Backs Book Club discusses Wuthering Heights
Join us on September 16 at 7 p.m. as we discuss Emily Bronte's classic Wuthering Heights.
"Lockwood, the new tenant of Thrushcross Grange, situated on the bleak Yorkshire moors, is forced to seek shelter one night at Wuthering Heights, the home of his landlord. There he discovers the history of the tempestuous events that took place years before. What unfolds is the tale of the intense love between the gypsy foundling Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw. Catherine, forced to choose between passionate, tortured Heathcliff and gentle, well-bred Edgar Linton, surrendered to the expectations of her class. As Heathcliff's bitterness and vengeance at his betrayal is visited upon the next generation, their innocent heirs must struggle to escape the legacy of the past."
Emily Brontë (1818-48) along with her sisters, Charlotte and Anne, is one of the most significant literary figures of the 19th century. She wrote just one strikingly innovative novel but was also a gifted and intense poet.
The Penguin edition of the book is available at Mac's Backs or through our website at the 20% book club discount.
